Evan’s plan to out abusers at Globes
THIS is one circle actors won't want to be in at the Golden Globes.
Evan Rachel Wood is calling on guests to out sexual harassers at today's awards by forming a circle around them.
"Hey! Persons' attending the Golden Globes this Sun. If you see a predator but don't feel you can say anything publicly, gather a handful of people and make a circle around them. The room will know," she tweeted, according to the New York Post.
The Westworld star said victims could chose not to be in the circle, adding "Brothers and sisters can circle in solidarity".
She also claimed this idea would serve to keep creeps from showing up to the event.
"We are going to see some circles this weekend, or because of this idea some predators won't bother showing up in the first place," she wrote.

The actor is one of several celebrities calling for attendees to wear black as a show of solidarity with women speaking out about sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.
Wood said harassment is so rampant, she "walked out in tears" last time she went to the Golden Globes after watching someone who abused a close friend win an award.

"But I worked up the courage to go up to them afterwards and just say two words. 'I know,'" she wrote. "Hopefully they don't even show up this time."
The actor has spoken out about her own experiences with harassment, revealing she has been raped twice, and why she isn't ready to name her attackers, saying she's "one person against some very powerful people".
